We have now officially entered the 5G Era with many commercial networks and devices being launched globally starting in the beginning of 2019. This first phase of 5G NR, based on 3GPP Release 15, primarily focuses on enhancing user experiences for mobile devices such as the smartphones, PCs, and XR. With new 5G NR technology  improvements such as massive MIMO and mobile mmWave, we are able to achieve new levels of performance. However, we are just at the beginning of the 5G evolution, and future 5G NR releases will bring even better capabilities and efficiencies for mobile broadband and deliver new designs targeting automotive and industrial applications.

Join this session to see how 5G NR is already enabling new and enhanced mobile experiences today, and learn what the continued 5G NR evolution in Release 16 and beyond will bring for mobile broadband and new applications.
